Overall Good
Claudia_F
, Aug 2022
This excursion was overall good. I loved the island, the water was crystal clear and just beautiful. Our guide, Cristian, was exceptional along with the other staff who were dancing and making everyone feel welcome. The negatives are the food, the early pick up time (6:50am), and the picking up people-which took extremely long.

Horrible

We woke at 5 in front of the hotel at 630. Off we went to 4 other locations to pick people up who weren’t ready .we missed the bus,waited on the side of the highway for 15 minutes for another bus.went to the marina .3 boats later we arrived at the island.walked 1 mile through the forest.arrived at a beach with 500 people and no chairs. Stood around for 15 minutes until someone left for 1 chaise . By now ,food was gone, 1 70 year old bartender couldn’t keep up with the lines.2 hours later we retraced this nightmare.tried to find a cab so it wouldn’t take 2.5 hours to get back to our resort.arrived back at 745 missing our dinner reservation.a 13 hour journey for 2 hours on a beach?really?as a travel professional for over 42 years ,I cannot and will not recommend or sell that excursion . It was awful…

A very long day for nothing that wasn’t at my hotel . We were told Saona was great for snorkelling but there is nothing there to see at all. Loud music on all day in the coach - the speed boat and the catamaran- all about the party and nothing else - great if you want too drink to oblivion and swim - the guide called it paradise but there was a lot of plastic caps possers and people trying to sell me stuff so for me it was in fact purgatory - would not do it again

The pick up time was scheduled at 6:30am but after constant phone calls reminding the representative that I was waiting, I was finally picked up at 7:30 am. I feel like I was forgotten No one called to tell me of the one hour delay…I was upset and stressed at the start of my day but overall I had a lovely experience. The Tour Guide Benjamin was excellent and friendly. I received good service Lots of entertainment and great food.

We got picked up outside of our Airbnb in Bavaro. We made a few stops to pick up others. The hosts spoke multiple languages (English, Spanish, French, Creole) so that was good. We had a photographer as well. The pictures are an additional fee if you want them. We stopped to swim at the “natural pool” for 30 mins. Didn’t really see starfish until we were leaving. We rode a speed boat there and the Catamaran back. Food was good when we got to Saona as well. I’d do it 100x more. Best birthday ever! 🥰

Great time, wish the catamaran was first not only in the way back from island.

I really enjoyed the island and the people were so nice! They had a lot of food options, the photographers go above and beyond to get great pictures of your time (please note the pictures are a bit expensive at the end, so only take some if you’re willing to pay a bit of a high price, they are worth it though) also I wish the catamaran party boat would have been at the beginning of the trip on our way to the island instead of on our way back because by that time we were all drained and no one was really partying just mostly sleeping around. But everyone is very friendly and it is very organized!

Saona Island was beautiful. The staff is wonderful on all the boats. The catamaran boat on the way back was the best part. That's everyday life for them and that's our paradise. I wish we could upload video. Thank you for a memorable experience.

Company didn't turn up to pick us up, after i did confirm by email where our hotel was! Rang them and was told to get a taxi to the port, so it ruined my birthday!

Trip was awesome worth the money they were on time for pick up time FYI take enough money to the island since they don’t take debit/credit card and you will need to purchase stuff

A long fun-filled day
Lisa_H
, Mar 2022
Our "tour daddy" Benjamin was very energetic, friendly and personable. My husband and kids and I enjoyed our time on the catamaran and the island although I wish we had more time to spend on the island itself. The food was great, there were options for myself as a vegetarian and my family who are meat eaters. Drinks were flowing freely all day, the catamaran was fun. We met a lot of great people from all over the world. The travel time to the catamaran was a bit long and sadly, I feel we spent more time on the bus than we did on the island. Overall we had a great day of people watching, swimming, dancing and eating. I would do it again now that I know what to expect.

Bargain Tour Company
Jeffrey_W
, Jan 2022
The Tour Guide and staff was excellent!! However, we did not anticipate being unloaded from our van right on the highway into a larger bus that took us to the harbor. The catamaran was old and rum & cheap cola was our only drink option (other than cheap cola alone). I was expecting at least a rum punch or other alcoholic drink options. Seeing Saona Island is what we wanted and super nice! Buffet was mediocre. Why is cheap spaghetti served on a remote Caribbean island?? My recommendation is to pick an Island Tour Company with newer boats and a "real bar" onboard if this is your first time. The all-around experience can be better.
